Some voting analysis

Verifiedvoting.org has some excellent coverage of the problems. I like their position on the recent election. They also have a useful geographic database of 1-866-OUR-VOTE calls available here; it contains nearly 34,000 incidents. Scanning the national database quickly, I note that the largest category of reported problems (21%) were registration-related, unsurprising to me. I remind everyone yet again that the registration system is the biggest barrier to voting.

Here is shows a color-coded map of reported long-line problems; they were most common in Ohio, Florida, and Georgia, far outstripping the numbers of reports of similar problems in the more populous states of New York and California.

One may, I think, reasonably assume that there were many more people affected than called in reports to 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

So...yes, it could have affected the outcome of the election. This isn't proof--far from it. But suspicious? Yes. I note again that this is good old fashioned keep-in-the-vote election manipulation.
